Overview

Historically, Martin's 21 styling has represented the simplest appointment level with rosewood back and sides and a spruce top. Introduced in 2007, Martin's OM-21 Special closely replicates this plain but beautiful style by blending rosewood bindings, a herringbone rosette, a nitrate tortoise pickguard and an ebony fingerboard and pyramid bridge. The D-21 Special Guitar shares identical appointments with the OM-21 Special, but in a dreadnought format. The resulting instrument offers Martin's legacy tone with classic style.

Top of the line performance!

By David Brent

from Oregon City, OR

Comments about Martin Standard Series D-21 Special Acoustic Guitar:

Similar to other top of the line Martins in performance and playability with understated elegance. I love the aged toner color and black binding vs the white bindings on D-28 style which looks too bright. The neck is a handful which I am learning to appreciate vs the leaner necks of my Gibson and Taylor. This is a nice looking and very fine sounding instrument!

Great sounding/looking guitar

By Charley

from Urbana, Il.

Comments about Martin Standard Series D-21 Special Acoustic Guitar:

I just bought mine a few days ago...its my 3rd Martin including an HD-28. Great looking with the stained top. Playability is wonderfully easy. The neck is a hand full but great for fingerpicking and the sound is awesome as an accompaniment to a singer. If you play it and fingerpick you'll buy it and not regret it...I'll never part with mine !!!
